“Painting for me is adventure! Every scene, every work of art has its own personality and unique flavour. Every painting, every study is puzzle to be worked out and solved, at least to the very best of my capabilities.”
Peter Colbert has been drawing and painting throughout his life. He has been winning various awards from an early age as a child in Toronto and several later in life in the graphic design, illustration and fine art fields. His work is known internationally and sold throughout the world.
Colbert is a graduate of Humber College and won a scholarship to Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, Canada. After learning the basics of excellent draftsmanship and spending years in graphic design and illustration honing his skills, he turned his attention to putting his personal stamp on his art.
In each of his paintings he sees the opportunity to create something he can get excited about as he utilizes his skills with concepts, composition, colour and craftsmanship. While many of his paintings are representative, others are abstracts where he allows his subconscious to take over while he applies paint to canvas with various implements using layers or glazes to maximum effect.
